Excerpt: When I picked up my first pair of Apple earbuds, I was very disappointed in how they kept falling out of my ears. Then Earpods came out, and since they had a different shape, I thought they would work better, but still, I had no luck. Sprng offered to have their Sprng clips for the Earpods reviewed, and it piqued my curiosity. First, I love cheap little things that can make life easier, and second, I had the possibility of using my Earpods on the bus or train.
Pros: - Easy to use, - Does a good job of keeping Earpods in ears, - Vibrant colors
Excerpt: No one missed the launch of the iPhones, iPads, and iPods last year, but Apple also updated updated a small but very important part of their product line: their standard in-ear headphones. The standard earbuds that you receive with Apple's products have been overhauled. Better late than never, as the original earbuds were never really popular. The new EarPods sound a lot better.
Excerpt: (1 items) [Editor’s note: Last week, we posted our initial hands-on impressions of Apple’s new EarPods . Now that we’ve had the EarPods for a week, we’ve expanded on those initial impressions for this formal review.] It’s become de rigueur to describe Apple’s white earbuds as “ubiquitous” and “iconic”—and justifiably so.
Excerpt: (1 items) It’s become de rigueur to describe Apple’s white earbuds as “ubiquitous” and “iconic”—and justifiably so. Not only are they almost inextricably linked to the company’s iPods and iPhones, but Apple revealed at its recent press event that it had shipped 600 million sets of the headphones, a number that almost certainly makes them the most-used piece of gear in the history of audio reproduction.
Summary: Apple's EarPods offer much-improved sound over the previous standard-issue earbuds, but they won't fit all ears equally well -- and that fit will determine whether you think they're great or just so-so.
Pros: The Apple EarPods offer mostly impressive sound, with good detail and better bass than Apple's previous headphones. They're also lightweight, with a comfortable fit, and have an integrated inline remote and microphone for making calls and controlling your music playback.
Cons: Some people may find that the EarPods don't fit securely in their ears, and these earbuds also let in a lot of sound and leak a little sound, too.
Excerpt: Apple has changed its iconic white earbuds quite a few times since their inception with the first ever iPod. Improving them little by little. This time Apple drastically improved and redesigned one of the most discerned headphones ever created. The new EarPods with Remote and Mic are a new breed of earbud and in-ear style of headphones composed by a futuristic, sleek pod design.
